(CBS4) – The ski train to Winter Park will return this ski season. Amtrak announced in a tweet earlier this week that tickets are on sale now.

The Amtrak Winter Park Express takes passengers between Union Station in Denver and Winter Park Resort. It will start making runs on Jan. 14 and will be operating on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays through April 3.

One-way fares begin at $29, with no extra charge for skis or snowboards. Fares for kids 12 and under are half-price.

Winter Park is scheduled to open for the season to skiers on Nov. 17.
